“=> Now, 2^2=(x-1/x)^2 = x^2 - 2x(1/x) + 1/x^2 = x^2 + 1/x^2 – 2. Therefore, x^2 + 1/x^2 = 4+2=6. Squaring both sides gives 6^2=( x^2 + 1/x^2 )^2 = x^4 + 2x^2(1/x^2) + 1/x^4 = x^4 + 1/x^4 + 2. Thus, x^4 + 1/x^4 = 36-2=34. Therefore, the answer is D. Answer: D”

Max@Math Revolution posted a reply to The points (1,6) and (7,-2) are two vertices of one diagonal in the Problem Solving forum
“=> The length of the diagonal of the square is √{ (7-1)^2 + (6-(-2))^2 } = √100 = 10. The side-length of the square is 10/ √2 = 5 √2 since the side-length of a square is equal to the length of its diagonal divided by √2. Thus, the area of the square is (5 √2)^2 = 50. Therefore, ...”
